As some of you may know, my cactus train has been ready and roaring since this little DIY several months ago, and I don’t plan to come to a screeching halt with it any time soon! Good news is my friends support the obsession, so when I met up with Kelly in Los Angeles last week for work, we decided to go full force with a cactus inspired brunch party with Lowe’s so we could catch up with some of our favorite West coast bloggers all in one place!

I think it’s actually physically impossible for us to cut corners when it comes to a celebration, so we have a jam packed party full of printable placemats, menu cards, budget friendly DIY favors (with some very unexpected Lowe’s supplies!), avocado donuts, and of course, my token macarons with cacti on them…

DIY Beach Ball Backdrop

I don’t make backdrops often, but when I do, I like to make sure that take as long as humanly possible to create. Just kidding. That’s technically not true though my previous experiences my state otherwise after this paper flower backdrop and now this DIY beach ball backdrop made of paper lanterns. What can I say? I just love over-committing.

In all seriousness though, when my friend Beth over at The Manor asked if I wanted to be a part of her 60’s summer soiree inspired launch party, I just HAD to make something out of beach balls but I did a long enough stint at Smilebooth to know a shiny backdrop is a big no, no, so regular beach balls were out!…

A Simple Easter Gathering & DIY Leather Chargers

I’m all about holidays, but to be totally honest, I don’t actually decorate too much for any of them just because it can be a large undertaking for such a short amount of time. Instead, I really love the idea of creating small elements with a holiday flair that you can use time and time again, but still make the space yours. To give you an idea of how to create a modern, gender neutral atmosphere for some upcoming get togethers, Brittni and I teamed up with Fossil to share our take on a simple Easter gathering & DIY leather chargers (as just one of the many handmade elements!) alongside some of our Houston friends.

In lieu of traditional Easter items, we opted to add in little nods here and there with ombre egg macarons, unexpected dip dyed egg colors as table accents, simple DIY bunny tail drink stirrers, and gummy fried eggs as party favors. In case Easter isn’t your thing, we have plenty of other ideas for your too, with spiked grapefruit lemonade cocktails, DIY leather chargers, DIY grid print runner, and LOTS of other goodies, cause you know, we always have to have more than one DIY around here!
